of hundreds? barack obama! >> that's my favorite am way presentation ever. >> all right, i get it time honored tradition to attach down expectations to make a slight win. >> here is great news for republicans, we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night, oh (bleep) we have a runner! we have a runner! >> what are you doing, christi? apparently new jersey governor chris christie didn't get the memo that romney sucks at this. >> i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> in whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christi? >> for god's sake if romney fails to meet those heavy expectations he will lose the general election creating chaos in the republican party and leave out 2016 -- oh! >> the jersey is strong in this one. >> so all these guys to have a mild familiarity with the english language and it is considered a win. can we hear from someone not affiliated with the campaigns, what their expectation might be? >> both men have a monumental undertaking for the first d
in an election, and yet the polls suggest that barack obama right now would win. how has he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy better than he has done? >> because this is not a normal time, and the damage done to the economy could not be fully repaired in four years, and most of the debt that's been run up on his watch is a direct result of the economic collapse, first the recession that began in 2007 and the economic collapse that happened in 2008, which has driven tax revenues down below 15% of income for the first time in 50 years, and driven spending above 21% of income, because so many people are on unemployment and food stamps and medicaid. medical assistance. if we had -- when the economy recovers a higher rate of growth, which it will in the next year or so, what's going to happen is with nothing happening, tax receipts will go up to about 17%, spending will drop to under 21%. there will still be a substantial deficit but it will be much smaller. president obama's main contribution to this $16 billion debt which is -- a $1 trillion debt which is a ten-year
will be the nominee and he'll lose. >> it is a big day in the big apple. >> president obama is in new york right now. >> america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. >> there was president obama giving a speech. >> i accept people are going to call me awful things every day. >> then there was mitt romney. >> the few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> if he's going to double down on that 47, that will cause difficulties. >> wait a couple of days for that bounce. >> he has no past that i can ever spot. >> i can appreciate your kind words. >> when i was a boy i used to think that becoming rich and becoming famous would make me happy. boy, was i right. >> yeah, he said that. with just 42 days until the presidential election and with a new poll showing mitt romney's path to the presidency rapidly narrowing, paul ryan is rapidly realizing that he is well on his way to becoming the next losing vice president candidate. so he is desperately trying to avoid the stench of romney. yes, the stench. that is what paul ryan is actually calling mitt romney, according to politico. repor
right back to iowa. everything begins in iowa. and we've got a recent poll that shows president obama has a seven point lead in iowa. so here's the guess. he wants to gets a many early votes in the bank in that state as possible and then move on with his person and his money. >> exactly. everybody knows iowa's that first state that votes in the primary and you caucus calendar and it's family us for that. it was the state that gave president obama -- senator obama his first victory. and he won iowa four years ago in the general election, considered a battleground state. both campaigns really going after it. four years ago goi, 545,000 iowans cast ballots early. and that was almost double what they did eight years prior. so early voting is important in iowa as it is in a bunch of these other states and that's why you're seeing the campaigns really press there not just in october, but now and in august because they knew that a lot of these voters will be casting ballots before the debates. >> when i was a kid, early voting was because you couldn't vote on election day and i know a lot of
obama credit for where the economy is right now, where it's going. his approval rating, his overall approval rating is consistently over 50% now. >> and he's ahead of romney and the other thing, joan, is that the campaign of mitt romney planned on making this whole election a referendum on the president. it seems like it's a referendum on romney and more important than just romney, what he represents. see, i think this election is not just about two personalities, two candidates, but it's two colliding ideas in this country. one built on building the rich and making them more profitable and trickling down the rest of us, where they say it's coming and those that believe in a country that really is there for the average american. >> and the government -- >> that's what this is about. >> right. the government is either going to help the top 1% in the hopes that things will trickle down or government is going to build the middle class like it did in the '40, '50s, and '60s. another interesting thing happened, reverend al, a new study found that we can finally say for the first time tha

in just a matter of hours. good morning. >> good morning. that's right. president obama will take off for denver in just a few hours. i'm told he'll have a little bit of down time with the first lady before the debate. he'll also do a walk through of the venue. here's how it's going to work. president obama will be given the first question. mitt romney will have the final word tonight. the debate will be broken up into six 15-minute segments for a 90-minute debate. it will include three on the economy, one on health care, one on governing and one on the state of government. the role of government, i should say. now, both candidates will be standing at podiums. no strict time limits. each candidate will have two minutes to answer that question and then the rest of the segment will be an open discussion about the topic at hand. so that is how the debate is going to do. aides with the obama campaign say his goal is to deliver his message in a crisp and clear manner. to not seem too long winded as sometimes he has in the past. so that's really his goal and also to make the case about why

, virginia right outside of washington, d.c. northern virginia, that area, is really obama territory. and here we are in virginia beach. this is not obama territory. and i think one thing that shows that is actually we're here at at the farm bureau live. the band that will be performing next here because this is a music venue is the zac brown band which performed at the republican national convention, something that struck me. but they're trying to cut into each other's margins. president obama did pretty well in virginia beach narrowly losing virginia beach county to john mccain. this is a strong veteran area which normally goes for republicans. mitt romney has to win here and president obama is here trying to make sure that it and virginia are out of his reach. >> so when you say mitt romney has to win here, what do the newspapers say so far, how have the polls been looking and where do they stand today? >> well, right now what we're looking at according to our latest cnn poll of polls, which is considering a lot of polls and averaging them, 50%-44% barack obama in the lead. so he

of the country, if he does that in enough turns what the country will shift to look at obama. right now the country has been focused on romney and not the way he'll win the election. stuart: all those that don't watch the full debate. two hours, goes on a long, long time. most won't watch the full thing, they will look at the media's response to a couple of sound bites from it. and that response will be negative towards governor romney and positive towards president obama. and look, i'm going to go further, i think the establishment media is doing is diiservice to america by clouding the issues and promoting a left of center president. >> well, look, i don't want to-- no, no, i'm not in the establishment media, there's no issue there and you know that i've come out. even though i originally supported obama i've come out very strongly against the effectiveness of his leadership for this country. especially on the economy. and there are million, tens of millions of people who have been hurt by the last four years in economic terms. nobody, nobody can change their-- they know what's happen
and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the g
, the right has tried to make huge news not out of something president obama has done as president but out after a big unveiling, a big, giant, coordinated round of attention for something from president obama's supposedly secret past. this spring it was the glen beck website dousing themselves in gasoline and pulling the fire alarm over video of president obama speaking as a law student at harvard. video at a press conference where obama says nothing news worthy. that was explosive tape, not at all. last month it was the drudge report, which means the romney campaign, it was them again dousing themselves in gasoline and pulling the fire alarm as what was hyped as outrageous video of president obama saying he believes in redistribution. specifically it was that he believes essentially in the progressive tax code that we have had in this country for a time period that's more easily measured in centuries than in individual years. again, not exactly a bomb shell. now they are dousing themselves in gasoline and hitting the fire alarm all over again over a video of president obama speaking as a
that you wake the [bleep] up. >> all right. now, president obama and mitt romney are of course out on the campaign trail. they both happen to be in virginia today trying to rally their own troops, and then they've even got ads, as well, where they are both facing the camera which always is slightly awkward if you ask me and making their personal appearances saying you got to vote for me and this is my plan. in has ad that president obama has, it's actually two minutes long if you watch the whole thing, he talks patriotism and how there's a new economic patriotism. >> governor romney believes with bigger tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer wall street regulations all of us would brought speaker. he'd double down on the same fiscal policies that got us here in the first place. our economy begins with a strong thriving middle class. >> it also involves everybody paying their fair share and keeping their money here instead of the cayman islands. i wonder who that might refer to. he didn't mention that in the two minutes but it was implicit. j.k. rowling has a book coming out today. back
a couple days obsessing over a 1980s or 1990s redistribution quote from obama right? that was the news of the day for the romney campaign at that time. we gave more attention to that than we did to the revifgs the gdp numbers or growth numbers that happened yesterday down from 1.7 to 1.3% growth. you would think in an ideal world for romney that would be a bigger story. the economy grew much slower in the second quarter than we thought. >> right. >> they put a lot more emphasis and push behind the redistribution quote which was old, sort of meaningless, didn't say much about obama. >> 1998. you're looking at the fact that over the last three months, kelly, you have jobs coming in at hundred dollar a hundred thousand per month. and they're chasing the headline of the day or they pull out a 1998 video. people don't care about that any more than they care about when mitt romney stopped being ceo of bain capital. what they want to know is how the hell are you going to get me back to work? >> when you watch a romney event from beginning to end day after day as we do as students of this you
america to go vote right now. if america went and voted right now, nate silver says president obama would win by 138 electoral votes. there are no marching bands leading people to the polls from the romney side right now. that is not what they need. what the romney side needs is that they still have to persuade people that governor romney is the guy they should vote for. at the national level, that means they need to fix whatever has gone so wrong with their campaign message and they need to stop doing whatever it is that has turned so many people off to their candidate. when you ask voters whether they like this mitt romney guy, the answer is a very, very plain answer. no. his favorable ratings are in the low 40s. almost 10 points lower than the ratings for president obama. lower, even, than the famously unpopular former president george w. bush right now. swing state voters say they do not think that mitt romney cares about the needs and problems of people like them. some of mr. romney's numbers are just shockingly bad. i mean double check. shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swin
in trying to hide the truth from you, the american people. that's right. the obama administration got help from coconspirators in the form of friends and liberal main street media. joining me to help expose the blatant bias brent bozell. only abc acknowledges that intelligence officials on the ground knew it within 24 hours. only one. watch this. >> the white house first suggested that the banghazi attack was spontaneous. the result of that anti-muslim video inciting mobs throughout the region. >> let's be clear, these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region. >> what happened to -- >> we certainly don't know. we don't know otherwise. we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> but sources tell abc news that intelligence officials on the ground immediately suspected the attack was not tied to the movie at all. >> sean: really? got one out of three. wasn't on the front page of many newspapers. why, brent? >> well, think about this. first of all, forget any evidence. there was something very suspicious about the enact a massive demonstratio
a two-point bump. either way it's news. (laughter) right now, folks, the obama people where are december it fromly trying to lower expectations. it's sad, just listen to obscene your advisor and anthropomorphized vanishing sound david plouffe. (laughter) jim? >> we've accepted that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in himselfry and shown himself to be a good debater through the years. we're sure he'll put on quite a show wednesday. >> yes, if there's one word america associates with mitt romney it's "show." (laughter) meanwhile, the romney people aren't playing these silly games. they're just being honest when they hail the president as a uniquely gifted speaker who is widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. (laughter) yes! he's a one-in-a-generation statesman whose rhetorical gift touched the human soul! when he speaks sparrows of the wood alight upon barack's shoulders as they did upon saint francis of assisi. he's no mere man he's a silver-tongued angel whose words can cure the sick, soothe the
, this law is just another example of obama's war on religion. which he cleverly passed in 1954. (laughter) but now some brave religious leaders have banded together to fight for their right to partyfy fill united nations. >> stephen: some one thousand pastors nationwide are preparing to deliver a sermon the i.r.s. may not want to hear. they're trying to draw attention to a 1954 tax code that prohibits tax-exempt organizations like churches from engaging in political endorsements a group known as the i ay lines defending freedom is now challenging the code claiming it violates preacher's right for free speech. >> they've marched october 7 as pulpit freedom sunday. >> yes, pulpit freedom sunday. when the thrill of lengthy sermons finally meets the excitement of tax policy. pulpit freedom sunday is the boldest theological movement since casual good friday. this sunday, october 7 pastors around the united states will violate the law by directly endorsing one of the candidates. it doesn't matter which, either romney or not-obama. (laughter) and to try to force this issue into court the sermons
, certainly it will. if the race were sort of fixed in time right now, everybody assumes that obama would win. in many ways that's happening because of early voting all right. so romney needs to change the trajectory in some way. now, that washington post is actually good news for romney in a sense he is winning the expectations game. people assume that obama will be better. so that may mean he doesn't have to do as well as all that to surprise people and say this guy is really up to the job. but the pressure is really on romney to change the direction of this race and to, you know, let people know it's not necessarily over. that can be done in various debates. but this first one is going to form the most impressions. >> john harwood says only twice have these televised debates seemed to shift the outcome of the race. in 2004 george w. bush went up against al gore. in gore's case, a strategist thought he lost that debate in the spin room. so i wonder, matt, how much of this is decided by what the candidates actually say? and how much by the pundits the day after? >> i give the american people
to move for obama, it was during the debates. specifically he made the case then right or wrong that he was a better steward of the economy than john mccain in troubled times. romney's got to make that case in 2012. >> little different when you're running against an incumbent. right? there's not a direct parallel there. >> look at the transcript. he was running against president bush. that these set of economic policies are wrong and i have a compelling vision. whether he can do that is another story. >> your colleague e.j. deion wrote journalists are in search of defining moments and game changers. by this standard, romney needs to game changer. obama can live quite happily without one. so do you think that mitt romney needs to have a big moment or if he is perceived to have won will at least give republicans some momentum. is that really the most reasonable thing to hope for? >> well, certainly it will. if the race were sort of fixed in time right now, everybody assumes that obama would win. in many ways that's happening because of early voting all right. so romney needs to change the

"the view" gets him more votes than meeting with 10 or 15 world leaders. and the fact that he's not doing his job is irrelevant. you have to divide it into two parts. there's winning the office and there is actually being president. he's clearly said if i can win the office, i don't care what the rest of you think. let me say, wh

to the campaign message of president obama, that he's the guy that relates to the middle class. >> that's right. you saw in that ad that we went around and talked to middle class voters across america and we talked to only people who voted for president obama. all in the middle class, all around this country. they're all changing their vote to mitt romney because of these issues, jobs and the economy, and they have seen that mitt romney's plan for a stronger middle class will work. so that's why these folks are changing their position. >> gretchen: sasha, i thought mitt romney was the out of touch rich guy? >> i do, too. >> gretchen: no, no, that's how he's been portrayed. but he's 14 points ahead with the people who are middle class! >> it's interesting what you said in terms of what he's laid out is better for the middle class because i think that's actually exactly why he is doing better with them is because the details aren't out. when you hear the "60 minutes" interview, he said the devil is in the details. that's right. when people hear what he actually wants to do, they're against him. t
. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among white working-class voters. mccain taken by over 30 points in 2008. so is romney at this point but it's
